Lincolnshire Local Medical Committee (LMC) is the statutory representative body for GPs and their Practices, operating across the county. We represent in total, around 450 GPs, whether Partners, Salaried GPs, or freelance locums. We exist solely to represent, advise, and support GPs and their Practices.
The committee is elected by the GP constituents it covers, and is entirely independent.
The Secretariat consists of the Chief Operating Officer, Medical Director & Administrative Officer and together they run the Lincoln LMC office. To find out more about the Secretariat click here.
All LMCS are funded by a statutory levy which is collected from Practices, and is based on the number of patients registered at that Practice. The amount is set by the Secretariat and reviewed annually. It funds the office and Officers of the LMC, as well as the Committee.
